We are very glad to be sailing again as that's what this boat and crew love best. We were under motor power for about 16 hours, but the wind has increased and we are now with full sail and using one engine to assist ie motor sailing.
The overcast and rainy weather did not dissuade 50 volunteers from boarding TRILOGY I and heading out across the channel to Manele Bay. On the journey over to Lana’i, we were lucky to encounter a pod of spinner dolphins.
Captain Gary got a phone call from our agent Tina saying the hurricane is going to hit Costa Rica. So our plans changed and Captain Gary told us we would not be leaving until Friday. Captain Seth and I decided to get a turkey and celebrate Thanksgiving in Panama on TRILOGY III.
One hundred and two hours: the amount of time it took to travel from the dock in Christiansted to the dock at Shelter Bay Marina in Colon, Panama. Captain Gary split the nearly five day crossing into watches. Each watch was covered by two of the five on board, so you had better learn how to get some really good sleep in four hours!
